Myrtle Rust is a major new threat to Australia’s flora. This information hub has been developed by the ANPC to significantly contribute to response capabilities here in Australia and overseas. Two elements are new and unique:
1/ consolidated Australian and global host lists which have not been published elsewhere. Updates of these host lists are anticipated to occur on a 3- to 6-monthly basis.
2/ a comprehensive global bibliography of literature on Myrtle Rust, which is a world first!
Rust pustules and spore masses on Agonis flexuosa (willow myrtle) cv. ‘Afterdark’.
